"It's not on any of our lists [of projects]," an MTA official told the Post.
(We knew it wasn't on any of the preliminary lists. Are we sure it's not on the final list?)
However, the Post reported, developer Bruce Ratner "still has a shot at getting some of the federal pork directly through Gov. [David] Paterson."
As far as I can tell, that's a generic reference to the fact that Paterson will control discretionary funding, not an assurance that Atlantic Yards is on a specific Paterson list.
